PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- AMA Pro Racing, the leading sanctioning body for motorcycle sport in the U.S., announced today Pro Honda Oils will continue its title sponsorship of the AMA Pro Honda Oils U.S. Supersport Championship. The series has grown in prominence for manufacturers and popularity for fans and is now classified as a true AMA U.S. Championship, second in stature only to the Chevy Trucks U.S. Superbike Championship.

"For the past 12 years, the Pro Honda brand has experienced unmatched customer recognition and support. AMA Supersport continues to offer some of the most intense and competitive racing in the world, and Pro Honda Oils is proud to be a part of that excitement," said Rick Mitchell, assistant manager of motorcycle parts, sales and marketing at American Honda.

"AMA Pro Racing is pleased to have Pro Honda Oils back for the 12th year as title sponsor of the AMA U.S. Supersport Championship," said John C. Farris, Jr., vice president commercial development, AMA Pro Racing. "Pro Honda Oils is a great supporter of AMA Pro Racing and does a terrific job integrating its racing sponsorship into the marketing of its product line."

For the past 22 years, Pro Honda Oils has been a part of more than 60 national motorcycle-racing championships. Pro Honda Oils most recent successes include the 2000 AMA Pro Honda Oils Supersport Championship and the 2000 AMA Formula Xtreme Championship titles.

Eric Bostrom of Las Vegas, Nev., was the overall points winner of last year's AMA Pro Honda Oils U.S. Supersport Championship. He defeated Anthony Gobert of Tuscany Hills, Calif., by 20 points and Miguel Duhamel of Sarasota, Fla., by 26 points.
